The Shepherd Hut can be powered via a battery, generator, or an extension cord. To take it off-the-grid completely, customers can opt for a solar power array and a battery bank to be installed. There is also the option of installing a wood burning stove or an ethanol fireplace. Fitting the hut with a composting toilet is also possible, though this may require a building permit.
The fully furnished, on-the-grid model of the Shepherd’s hut costs CAD 32,900 (29,146 USD), with the off-the–grid additions not included in this price.
